CCTV fire detection is a fire detection technology that combines traditional surveillance technology with IR camera technology and digital imaging analysis.

It works by constantly analysing a live video feed for the occurrence of fires.

There are big advantages of CCTV fire detection over other detection methods. To begin with, a CCTV fire detection camera can spot fire and flames even from a distance. Some modern optical fire detection systems can spot small flames from several hundreds of metres away. This makes these systems in particular suitable for the outdoors or any other location where other fire detection methods such as smoke detectors would not be suitable.

CCTV fire detection cameras are often also equipped with the ability to automatically call the fire brigade immediately once a fire had been detected. With the help of GPS technology, they can provide the responders with the exact location of a fire. CCTC fire detection systems can furthermore detect multiple fires.

Where can CCTV Fire Detection Be Used?

CCTV fire detection can be used in all such locations where other methods for detection would not work. They are in particular well suited for the monitoring of outdoor locations such as forests, plantations, mountain ranges and so forth. They are also ideal for monitoring large industrial complexes, manufacturing plants, oil rigs, sports stadiums and many more.
